what is my score in language skills

hi all,

I took the Ielts test last year and I got 7.5 ( reading and listening 7.5, writing 6.5 and speaking 8) can anyone tell me if the score I can achive of that, is 25 or 15?
my second question is: can I replace my Ielts test results with a new one during the process of my application? since I have lodged in my application and everything but in case I get only 15 points, my total score will be 115 and I will no longer be eligible for subclass 175.

thanks

You need a minimum of 7.0 in all 4 bands to get 25 points and with a 6.5 you still fall short and will just have 15 points.
If you have already applied, that's it.
With 115 points you'll need to be looking at a state/family sponsorship 176 or alternately employer sponsorship.

If you are eligible to apply for a state/territory sponsorship that can have your 175 visa treated as a 176 visa but there is a bit of a hold on those at the moment as you can find from reading state links under 176 eligibility.
Have a read of details via Visa Options – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration and also the Announcements of 08Feb. on the What's New link will give you an idea of recent changes relevant.
There is a fee for some if not all sponsorship applications, they being a separate process from those of Immi.
There is no additional Immi fee for the 176 but Employer Sonsorship visas are a separate visa meaning a new application and a smaller fee for initially a 457 temporary residency visa and then if you can get eventually sponsorship for permanent residency, having applied for a 175 visa, the ES PR visa application is fee free.
Of course you need to find an employer eligible to and prepared to sponsor.
Details via Employer Sponsored Workers - Workers - Visas & Immigration
